West Shore RCMP are searching for a man who allegedly injured another man during a violent carjacking near the Millstream Village McDonald’s in Langford.
Police said at 9 p.m. Monday, they received a 911 call about a robbery and car theft near the McDonald’s. When officers arrived, a 52-year-old man told them he had been robbed while sitting idle in a parking lot.
According to police, a male suspect opened the victim’s car door and grabbed him by the shoulders, throwing him out of the car onto the ground. The suspect then drove away and police said he nearly ran over the victim.
The victim sustained minor injuries to his wrist, elbow and hip. He was taken to hospital.
The suspect is described as a Caucasian man, 5’7,” 160 pounds and 30 to 40-years-old. He was wearing a black jacket, white pants, beige boots and a black toque.
The stolen car was a Nissan Versa with the BC licence plate FL5 41W. There was a parking pass that says “U85” in the rear window.
“Our serious crime investigators are canvassing the area to gather evidence as to the identity of the suspect. We are asking the public to be on the lookout for the stolen vehicle and to contact 911 right away if observed,” Cpl. Chris Dovell of the West Shore RCMP said in a release.
